Baltimore Community Foundation supports neighborhood projects in Baltimore
August 18, 2014
[8/18/2014] Baltimore, MD - The Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF) has awarded $122, 942 in grants from its Neighborhood Grants Program to 33 community projects in neighborhoods across Baltimore City and County.
Neighborhood grants go to projects such as creating community gardens, youth leadership training, and community festivals. Though they reflect various interests and causes, each grant helps neighbors invest in their communities as they mobilize to complete a neighborhood project, build new leadership, or strengthen existing leadership within their communities.
“Social engagement is key to neighborhood development, and we are seeing some real changes happening from the bottom up,” said BCF President Tom Wilcox. “These grants might seem small but they can have a big impact on the entire community.”
BCF aims to help neighborhoods become and remain safe, vibrant, clean and green, and to be supporters and champions of their local schools. Our Neighborhood Grants Program offers three types of small grants to Baltimore City and County community-based organizations that are pursuing these objectives: Leadership Grants, Mobilization Grants, and Community Arts Grants.
